About our home

Our home was built in 2009. It is located within 40 minutes of Dublin, and only 15 minutes from historic Newgrange and the Boyne Valley. It is 270 sq meters in size on a large site, with lots of fun and play facilities for our children. We have bicycles for all ages, go-karts, football and basketball nets, board games and a range of reading material for all ages.

The house is on a secluded site of an acre in size, 500 meters from the road. Panoramic views across the Irish Sea and south to the Dublin Mountains are stunning. In summer, there is an abundance of raspberries in the garden.

The large kitchen is at the heart of the home, whilst the sunroom is the perfect place to enjoy the views. Our children enjoy having their own place in the play room and outdoor play house.

Within 30 minutes our home, visitors can climb the Cooley mountains, visit Newgrange and The Battle of the Boyne site, Monasterboice Round Tower and High Celtic crosses, head to the beach, visit Slane and Trim castles or seek adrenaline highs at Tayto Theme Park. Within an hour are Ireland’s longest cycle Greenway awaits, Dublin’s theatres and museums and Belfast’s Titanic quarter.
